Best Bets of the Day

Racing returns to Ascot racecourse and Flemington racecourse this Wednesday for listed racing at each and what a privilege it is to have listed racing at two racecourse on a Wednesday. I have run through both of the cards and posted full length free horse racing tips and also an exotics tips article but in this page we focus on our best bet and best outside chance of the day across the racecourses as well as where you can get the best odds across our aussie betting sites / betting apps and then also outline our best promotions across the aussie betting sites. In the final part of the article you should find some helpful track insights for both the racecourses which should assist your horse racing betting. Follow me below for another great day of racing this Wednesday!

Best Tip: Ascot - R2 - #14 - Blazing Emerald

It has to be Blazing Emerald here and I am confident she is the best horse relative to her field of the entire day at Ascot. She last raced at Pinjarra when coming from last in the run to storm home and clock some of the best late splits of the meeting when running into fifth. She should be able to settle closer and the track is more in favour of her run style, she just wins this IMO.

BEST OF THREE TOTES

*The Best Tote bet type pays bettors the highest dividend declared by the three national totes. The VIC TAB, NSW TAB and UBet. This likely means that there aren't fixed odds available at the time of writing this on that bookmaker and there likely will be.

Best Roughie: Flemington - R1 - #7 - Rewards And More

Bound to be a talented horse is Rewards And More who is both very well bred and also who has jumped out very very sharply for his racing debut for Jerome Hunter. The most recent of which saw him let down well to win smartly at Sandown a couple weeks ago. Craig Will gets the ride and he has a good strike rate for the camp. Well placed here.

Stats and Insights

  • Maher and Eustace are the top trainers at Flemington Racecourse so far this season and historically (last two seasons), they have a bunch of favourites and second favourites running tomorrow so watch for those I have outlined in my extensive Flemington tips.
  • Ascot racecourse has quite a short home straight and as such the track generally plays hard and fast and favours on pacers as such.
  • William Pike is a legendary jockey and the best in the west so watch for all of his rides tomorrow at Ascot, irrespective of the odds.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

Best Racing Promotions

Palmerbet, in recent weeks, has stood out to me across the Aussie betting sites that offer racing promotions and is one that I would take a look at, especially for big race days that feature Group 1 races and Saturday’s in general. 


On our site we have a Palmerbet Review that goes in depth into the bookmaker as well as  a  Vicbet  and Punterspal review amongst some of the other top bookmakers that frequently have promotions.

Promotions  tend to change regularly, so it is important to sign up to these betting sites to stay updated on the latest applicable promotions.
